This could have been a decent plot if it was a few episodes longer - I think they had to edit several hours of plot and wrap -up. The lead detective is watchable but he makes a bunch of mistakes. Several of the casts' background stories - his included are murky. Most of the actors, especially the women, are downright grotesque looking or just hateable. The finale clears up NOTHING. If the biggest crimes in Iceland are drugs and money laundering, the editor and director qualify for both in making this. #SAD
